I AM THE IDEA FACTORY WHERE LEGENDS ARE BORN. I COME UP WITH THE IDEAS AND CONCEPTS, AND BUY COMMISSIONS ACCORDINGLY. REQUESTS ARE TREATED LIKE SUGGESTIONS, AND ARE NOT CONSIDERED PRIORITY. IF I LIKE THE IDEA, I'LL GET TO IT WHEN I GET TO IT.

:icondontask4pts1::icondontask4pts2::icondontask4pts3::icondontask4pts4::icondontask4pts5::icondontask4pts6::icondontask4pts7:

ALL POINT REQUESTS WILL BE IGNORED. REPEAT OFFENDERS WILL BE REPORTED AND BLOCKED. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. I DONATE POINTS WHENEVER AND TO WHOMEVER I SEE FIT. IF YOU HAVE TO ASK, THE ANSWER IS "NO."

***HERE COMES THE HERO...

TO SAVE THE WORLD FROM DESTRUCTION...

THIS IS R-LEGEND!***

Now that that's out of the way, a little intro. I'm a highly creative individual who can be inspired by almost anything at anytime. Cosplay is my extravagent hobby. Love cosplaying and love taking cosplay photos. I'm always looking for the perfect shot. It's the way I appreciate and remember everything that I've liked over the years. I have over *100* cosplays that I've worn and still come up with even more ideas to wear in the future. I travel to pretty much any convention or gathering I feel like going to in the U. S. You never know when or where I'll show up next.

I'm also into sports, video games, TV shows and action movies too.

Oh yeah, AND I'M AWESOME!

Those are the basics. Want more? OK.

Some of you know me from anime, gaming and comic conventions. Some of you know me from cosplay gatherings. Some of you know me as that guy from California who is "Going Hardcore On The Cons And Cosplays This Summer Without Hesitation Or Reason." Others as "that mysterious cosplayer on YouTube that shows up in every convention video or CMV." And some of you just Watch me at random. But really, who is this guy? Well I'll tell you...

Why yes, I am "Going Hardcore On The Cons And Cosplays This Summer Without Hesitation Or Reason."

I'm the Valor Form you eat lunch with.

I'm the Wisdom Form you take trickshots with.

I'm the Master Form you walk around Chicago with.

I'm the Final Form you do epic battle with.

No, I'm Me, And You're Toast!

I have 7 Days.

I'm the Star Blitzball Player for the Zanarkand Abes.

I'm working for "Strife Delivery Service."

I'm the Vocaloid from the Steel City, waving that Terrible Towel!

I'm a Viking or a Bengal, depending on who you ask. Dattebayo.

I'm Sora's best friend, only in Tripp clothes.

I'm Ven's dark side, only in Tripp clothes.

I'm the Gamer with the Keyblade, riding your Disneyland rides.

Mine is the drill that points to the heavens!

I'm an avenger whose here to revive my clan.

I'm the 6th Hokage of your Leaf Village.

I'm the Sage beating down your Akatsuki.

I'm the Sage of your Prom Gathering.

I'm the Hero of Time that saves your kingdom.

I'm the Yellow Turbaned peasant leading your rebellion.

I'm the WWE Champion and the leader of Legacy.

YOU CAN'T SEE ME.

I'm going to find The One.

I'm not afraid of the darkness.

I'm Tiger Woods. I don't lose the game.

Where on Earth am I now?

Well Sora, it looks like my summer vacation's over.

I'm the Perfect Soldier, the Wing to your Gundam.

I'm #17.

I'm the Agent hunting down...Mr. Anderson.

I'm still the hyperactive ninja you know and love, only a little older and a little wiser.

Blue Is The Colour,
Cosplay Is The Game.
We're All Together,
And Winning Is My Aim.
So Cheer Me On Through The Sun And Rain,
'Cos J. RYOGA Is My Name.

Yeah, I'm that guy. Any questions?

All The News You Need To Know

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 14, 2018, 5:25 PM
Summer is officially over!! Here's what's going on in my world:


NORCAL SUMMER COSPLAY GATHERING 2018

Looking For Pics Of My Cosplay:
*KEN from Street Fighter

The long-awaited return to Coyote Point after a two-year absence. Granted, it was the "Summer" gathering even though it got pushed back all the way to the first day of Fall. :XD: This was the first gathering where the new committee was in charge, and it was perfectly fine. Most of my time was spent taking pictures at the beach or the marina with :iconhinapop: in her Summertime Mercy cosplay from Overwatch. Not too much else going on, which was fine because people come to Coyote Point mainly for the scenery. This officially wraps up my Summer Cosplay Season this year. But the beat goes on as usual, because two weeks later came...


NEW YORK COMIC-CON 2018

Looking For Pics Of My Cosplays:
*CASUAL VANITAS from Kingdom Hearts
*OROCHI CHRIS from King Of Fighters '97 and 2002
*BORUTO UZUMAKI
*NICK FURY from the MCU

My 5TH TIME in 7 years! Didn't really attend any cosplay meetups (DC and Naruto seemed like the only organized meetups, Marvel and everything else were just small groups hanging out and doing their own things, and Star Wars was M. I. A.) but accomplished the primary goal of getting a photo with DANIELLE FISHEL (aka TOPANGA from Boy Meets World!) And this year marked the very FIRST time I set foot inside MADISON SQUARE GARDEN for the Dragon Ball Super Movie panel on Friday night, and The Walking Dead Season 9 Premiere on Saturday night!!! Cosplays were on point as always with more Kingdom Hearts than expected, Marvel, DC, DBZ, My Hero Academia, Street Fighter, Mega Man, Overwatch, and even a PACIFIC RIM GROUP!!! :O Plus the usual amounts of Naruto, Walking Dead, and random cosplaying families. Creativity on display everywhere! Saturday was especially fun, repping King Of Fighters as Orochi Chris with one half of "The Legendary Duo" as Yashiro. We even met a Tekken 7 Geese Howard!!! And taking pictures of :iconspidernhan:'s Luffy outside a ONE PIECE THEMED RESTAURANT down the street from the con!!! And then came Sunday...everyone...EVERYONE KNEW WHO NICK FURY WAS ON SUNDAY. Even little kids on the street were pointing at saying "Nick Fury!" or "Marvel!" Plus getting photos from comic, MCU and Fox Marvel cosplayers because it's NICK FURY! XD

It was TOPANGA-CON, MADISON-SQUARE-GARDEN-CON, KING-OF-FIGHTERS-CON, VANITAS-CON, OROCHI-CON, NICK-FURY-CON, LUFFY-CON, KAIJU-CON, WALKING-DEAD-CON, MAD-FANTASY-CON, RHYTHMIC-HALLUCINATION-CON and GOKU-CON. Glad to see everyone that I could.

J. Ryoga Will Return.

The next couple of months are going to be spent dealing with the MASSIVE backlog of cosplay photos along with the usual commissions and other projects. R-Legend's Work Is Never Done, LOL.

----------------------------------------- 

WELCOME TO ALL MY NEW WATCHERS! Cosplay is my extravagent hobby. Love cosplaying and love taking cosplay photos. I'm always looking for the perfect shot. It's the way I appreciate and remember everything that I've liked over the years. I have over 100 cosplays now and even more ideas on the way. I'm a highly creative individual. I can be inspired by almost anything at anytime. I travel to pretty much any convention or gathering I feel like going to in the U. S. You never know when or where I'll show up next. 


-----------------------------------------


WHAT EXACTLY IS "R-LEGEND?"

People have realized that I'm about more than just cosplay and ask "Why is Ryoga fighting all these random people?" So here's a little bit of info about some of the artworks I commission for the "R-LEGEND" section of my gallery: 

R-LEGEND is the story of J. Ryoga, a young man who founds a martial arts/military/superhero organization destined to wage war against the forces of evil in the universe. Through the course of his life, he encounters many friends, battles countless enemies, and even raises a family to carry on once his part in the story ends. After much consideration and debate, "RWO" itself is an acronym for an ancient alien phrase loosely meaning "Army of Light." Originally, Ranma 1/2 characters were the main focus of the story, but over time it grew into what can only be described as the "ultimate crossover action fanfic." So in addition to cosplay photos and random character art, I also upload images and artwork from the "R-Legend" story in the "R-Legend" folder of my gallery. Some characters you may recognize, and others you may need to Google to learn more about.

R-LEGEND was originally an online club I started back in college. First, we were an America Online chatroom roleplay group called "RWO," then we grew to become an online club devoted to creating a massive crossover fanfiction story based on various video games, anime, cartoons, comics, sci-fi series, fantasy series, spontaneous events that took place in AOL chatrooms, and the creative ideas that my friends have pitched to me over the years. The group's name changed from "RWO" to "R-Legend" because in essence, the story is "our legend."

What is all this leading to? I'm not at liberty to go into too many details right now but stay tuned. 

Things are becoming clearer over time.


-----------------------------------------

ATTACK OF THE COMMISSIONS! or "MAKE IT SO, NUMBER ONE."
The commission train keeps on rolling! Seeing my favorite pairings drawn is like watching my favorite sports team win the World Series or Super Bowl or Champions League. An exhilarating rush like no other! I've got a ton more ideas and with the help of VERY TALENTED ARTISTS all over DA, I will "Make Them So." 

COMING SOON (or later, depending on artist workload & schedule)

Gotta prove that you're for real, and that you're in it for the long haul.

First time seeing this page and I'm a BIG Ranma 1/2 fan!

What is "RWO" about anyway?

So that's how it is.

I have a crossover thing myself on FanFiction called "QCFP".

"QCFP" means "Quarter Circle Forward Punch", the basic command of the Hadouken. It's basically Lucky Star vs. everyone else.
